CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio (WJW) – It’s National Peace Officers Memorial Day and our men and women in blue are being honored across the country.

This year’s observation is extra heartbreaking after the death of Euclid Officer Jacob Derbin.

Cuyahoga Falls and Silver Lake joined together Wednesday to remember three officers who have died in the line of duty over more than a century, along with others who have sacrificed in service to the community and our country.

The memorial bears the names of officers Ira Goldwood, Clarence Chance and Charles Case, dating back to the early 1900s.

This community also remembers those who have died after decades of service, those who have been police officers locally and who have died while serving in the armed forces.
